Here's the thing about tattoos, guys, they're totally subjective. What one person considers beautiful ink, another person might consider prison yard scribble. That said, Ben Affleck's back tattoo is without a doubt the ugliest ink we've ever seen. It's not only huge and cliche, it's poorly executed.
The Internet most definitely shares in that sentiment, as Affleck has been getting roasted beyond belief all over Twitter. Normally, we don't condone this sort of trolling, but, hey! You've got to read some of these descriptions, they're too damn funny to pass up.
Next time you're feeling sad, remember that you're not Ben Affleck so you (probably) don't have a tattoo so big and so ugly and so universally ridiculed that you had to lie and say it was only temporary and just for a movie when it is so clearly not.

Ben Affleck's back tattoo is, and I'm saying this without hyperbole, one of the funniest goddamn things I've ever seen in my entire life. Holy moly. What a wonderful gift to all of us this is. Truly a great day to be alive because of this obscenely dumb tattoo. (via @people) pic.twitter.com/8LtvmF1Z5h— Dashiell Driscoll (@dashiell) March 19, 2018
you ever see ben affleck in a movie and forget for a second that he has a giant tattoo of a psychedelic phoenix rising from the ashes that covers his entire back because I DON'Thttps://t.co/thMBiyHr0r pic.twitter.com/YZxV8grUh0— Brian Grubb (@briancgrubb) March 16, 2018
Don't get us wrong, Ben Affleck is both a handsome and talented man, we mean, come on, you don't land both Jennifer Lopez and Jennifer Garner by being a complete lemon, but, yikes. That ink is just not OK.
The most confusing element of the tattoo is that Affleck previously stated it was fake. In an interview with Mario Lopez a couple of years back, he explained, "[It’s] fake for a movie. I actually do have a number of tattoos but I try to have them in places where you don’t have to do a lot of cover up they get sort of addictive, tattoos, after awhile."
Well, there you have it, Affleck is so ashamed of his rainbow phoenix that he himself can't accept the reality that it's on his freakin' back for life.
